Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I really liked this method, although I wasn't nuts about the spices. I prefer the spices from the Sticky Rotisserie recipe here. But, I love, love, love how quick and good this was!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is really and truly a fabulous banana bread! I've made it with sour cream (full fat) and with fat free Greek yogurt and both are delicious! I have also made this recipe as muffins with the topping from To Die For Blueberry Muffins and what a smash hit! Thank you for sharing!

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
I like this cake, the texture is very, very nice - melts in your mouth. I just wish it had more depth of chocolate. I felt like it was very much on the surface and nothing behind it. I would make it with espresso instead of water next time and maybe even adding cocoa nibs or mini chips. Edited to add - I also added about 1/2 t. salt to the icing. That gave it a rich caramel flavor instead of just being sweet.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
We love this! I added a peeled, seeded and diced cucumber and chopped cilantro for extra volume and taste. The only thing I would change is to double the dressing (still only using 1 of the chicken seasoning packs though), we wanted more dressing. Mmm. Thanks!

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. We LOVED these! I used 1 lb. lamb and .5 beef (couldn't find lamb in a smaller pack) and omitted the savory because it was nowhere to be found! But still so very good. Next time a bit more salt, probably. We had them on pitas with tzatziki, onions and tomatoes. The texture was (obviously) burger v. true gyro meat, but the taste was spot on. Thanks for sharing!

Chili Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
Yum. Yum. Yum. I microwaved the potatoes in the morning and then just peeled 'em once they cooled. Easier to work with and no pot to clean! I rolled up the kids portions and then added some chopped fresh serrano peppers to the grown-up portions. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
This was good. I couldn't find consomme, so had to settle for plain beef broth, but with a bit of salt (the irony, I know) and some onions it was a good dipping sauce. It made a great quick dinner w/fresh fruit. Thanks for sharing!

Figs and Toasted Almonds Brie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
We thought this was delicious. It was a great dinner - green salad, this, and French bread. Mmmm. A few thoughts - if your figs are very ripe, you don't need 10 minutes to soften them. Whole, toasted almonds are divine in this. And if you peel the rind off your cheese, it becomes a gooey dip. Next time we'll leave the rind on so it stays a bit more in its' original form.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Oh man these are so good!!! I did use butter instead of shortening as that's what we had around. My house smells good, the kids LOVE them and it's fruit, so it's healthy, right? These are divine!!!

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
These were terrible. I like chewy brownies, I like cakey brownies. I just like brownies. These were grainy, incredibly sweet and the chocolate flavor was lacking. I'm going back to the Betty Crocker one from my Mom's 1960s era cookbook.

Warm Mushroom Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This recipe is not even fair! Too, too, too good. As suggested in some other reviews, I made it ahead of time and then placed in the fridge until I warmed it to serve. I made a double batch and 14 women ate most of it. The little that remains is preciously guarded for steaks tonight and maybe biscuits in the morning. Too delicious!!!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
This is SO good!!! A big hit at a little get-together last night - thanks for sharing the recipe. I used 4 fresh jalapenos (seeded and chopped) and it was just right - a bit of kick for those who like it yet not overly strong for those who don't. Sooooooo good!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I think this sauce was just average. I subbed fresh ginger for ground, but that shouldn't make a big change. We found it really, really bland but with promise. The second time I added several dashes of worcestershire sauce as well as a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Much better. I'm not sure about the reviewer who used mustard and milk - I can't imagine milk ever being good in this!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
We really liked these burgers. I think they could use a bit more seasoning (even with a bit of worcestersire, soy and smoke added), so a bit more salt. A great, healthier change from the norm. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
I agree with the reviewer who said the marinade was good, but the flavor never really got into the shrimp. I did as directed with the exception of using lime juice instead of lemon (lime seems more in keeping with Thai flavors than lemon, to me at least). We served it with cilantro/ginger rice and edamame. It was ok, but not a must have again for us.

Caramel Turtle Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
It's good, but more cake than brownie. I used dulce de leche instead of melting/milking the caramels - essentially the same thing, but much simpler. Next time I'll use a brownie recipe and just add in the caramel/pecan/chip step.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
This was just sublime! So good. I didn't change much - I did salt and let the bitters drain out and then rinse and squeeze out each slice of peeled eggplant. I baked my slices at 450 for 15 minutes on each side on a pan sprayed with olive oil. They were crispy when done and delicious. This was better than what I've eaten out at a lot of restaurants and now that I can make it healthily at home, I will! Thank you very much!

Chocolate Cut Out Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
I read the reviews and added one extra cup of flour and they were still too soft (even after chilling all afternoon) to roll. So, I rolled between two sheets of wax paper, used cutter, removed excess, froze the cookies until solid and only then baked. They still didn't hold a fairly simple cut out shape. The no-fail sugar cookie recipe at cakecentraldotcom is much, much better. I think this recipe has too much egg and that's why it's so soft. I'll keep looking.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
I just went and reread all the reviews and don't get what I did wrong - but it must have been a doozy because these were awful for us. In seven years of cooking together, this is only the second dish my husband wouldn't eat. These had absolutely no flavor - and I added all of the spices, chili sauce, garlic, etc. Usually if a recipe is so-so, I'll remake it. This isn't one of them for us. I hope others have better luck with it.

Baked Pear

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
I know it wasn't intended as a dessert but that's how we had it and it was great. My changes were to use fresh ginger because that's what we use in our house and I sprinkled some raw cashews on for a bit of crunch. The pears melted in our mouths for a sweet, yet light finish. Thanks!
